Being a “Student-Athlete” entails a delicate balance between academic success and athletic performance. Liam’s ability to balance a demanding work and school schedule with ultimate performance is something that every T-Bird desires. Known for his shifty cutting, surgically precise throws, and seeing the field at another level, Liam “Doc” Stobart has been making plays for the T-Birds for the past 5 years, all while finishing up his undergrad in Biochemistry and his M.D.

How/when did you start playing ultimate?

In 2005, our high school grad class decided to start a frisbee team so all our friends could play a sport starting out together as beginners. I played mostly rec ultimate until 2010 when I joined the UBC team.

What is your favourite ultimate moment? 

Beating Oregon for the NW regional title in 2011.

He didn’t answer this question, but I know for a fact it’s his squat flick huck. It’s hard to describe, and you’ll have to see it in person. 

Any hobbies outside of ultimate?

Any interesting facts about you?

I have a twin brother.

Liam is in his 4th year of Medicine, and has really enjoyed his time with the T-Birds. Despite the costs of tuition, Liam has greatly appreciated the connections he has made with his teammates, the outlet for physical activity, and enjoys representing the T-Bird name. Check out our fundraising page for info on how to support Liam and the team, and even get some Thunderbird gear.
